Improving Outcomes with Clinical Decision Support
An Implementer's Guide, Second Edition
Winner of the 2012 HIMSS Book of the Year Award!
Co-published by HIMSS, the Scottsdale Institute, AMIA, AMDIS and SHM, this second edition of the authoritative guide to CDS implementation has been substantially enhanced with expanded and updated guidance on using CDS interventions to improve care delivery and outcomes. This edition has been reorganized into parts that help readers set up (or refine) a successful CDS program in a hospital, health system or physician practice; and configure and launch specific CDS interventions.
Two detailed case studies illustrate how a "real-life" CDS program and specific CDS interventions might evolve in a hypothetical community hospital and small physician practice. This updated edition includes enhanced worksheets--with sample data--that help readers to document and use information needed for their CDS program and interventions. Sections in each chapter present considerations for health IT software suppliers to effectively support their CDS implementer clients.
